Welcome to the Apartment Department

Where we specialize in small, functional, special spaces.

There may be limits on your square footage. There may be limits on your rental lease—you can't paint, you can't add on pony stables or a built-in bouncehouse—but that doesn't mean there are limits on you. You're still creative. You still want to make the place all your own.

And you can.

Whether it's your first apartment or a new place, these are ideas that work for renters. And when it's time to move, you can pack it all up and make it work again in your new space. Because you're sensible like that.

Apartment lighting, mirrors and rugs

Yeah, it's the oldest trick in the book. Because it works. Create the illusion of space and light with one strategically placed mirror. (Think opposite or near a window.) Wow factor. Check out our stylish mirrors.

 

Overhead lighting is either not that bright or interrogation-room bright. For functional and flattering light, add lamps in varying heights. Even easier: Hang a few paper lanterns.
Discover our unique lamps & lighting.

Apartment carpet runs the gamut from gray to, um, beige. But you can invest in a soft, tufted rug to layer on carpet or wood. It adds warmth, covers mystery spots and muffles sound. Check out our eye pleasing runners & rugs.

Apartment decor & desks

Create your own architectural details with carved wood panels or dimensional wall hangings. Can't use nails? Peel-and-stick wall appliques are cute, fun and leave no marks. Discover more fancy wall art here.

 

You might have classes or contract work, or crafts to make or a book to write. With a desk and a few special, multitasking pieces, you can create a workspace without a lot of space. Find more sturdy desks for your workspace.

Wicker chairs, apartment window panels, kitchen gadgets, dinnerware, flatware, bar stools & bar tables

Prettier than standard-issue blinds, window panels aren't just for windows. Use them to cover plain walls, divide rooms, replace closet doors and block the too, too bright sun. Explore our stylish window panel options.

Or two. Natural, hand-woven wicker has a beauty all its own. Especially for renters. Wicker is easy to move (lighter weight) and way easy to update (change the cushion, not the chair). Check out our unique wicker furniture here!

Noodles are your friends. At least, your bank account's friends. So stock basic but fun cooking gear—colander, spatulas, measuring cups, mixing bowls– that can double as cute servers.
Discover our popular kitchen serving utensils here.

And that means dinnerware. But also a good flatware set, placemats and goblets that can be your everyday drinking glasses as well as wine glasses for your fancy-schmancy parties. Find more dinnerware & place settings here.

At a dining table. Can you find one that fits your budget and space? Yes and yes. Look for slim tables with stools that slide under, or a bar table that slides into a corner.
Check out our ideal bar stools and  dining tables here.

space saving hampers and baskets

Turn one square foot of space into storage central with a tiered basket. Use smaller baskets for makeup trays or bathroom vanity organizers. Huge baskets? Workout gear or laundry.
Organize with hampers & baskets.
